CBS: Redskins FA Haul Receives ‘A’ Grade

(AP)

CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist Pete Prisco is a notoriously prickly pundit. In his review of the first 10 days of free agency, Prisco only gave two of 32 franchises “A” grades: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Washington Redskins.

Here’s what Prisco had to say about Washington’s moves in free agency to date. Read more »

The No. 1 Free Agent Smoothie Man

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 10, 2014 – 2:32 pm

edelman2

Free agency creates endless debate. Who has the most upside? Who will blow up? Who will grab the cash and fade away?

One thing is certain. Nobody makes a smoothie like receiver to watch Julian Edelman. Wherever the slot receiver slash return specialist lands, he’ll bring a taste for island ice and a flair for fanny packs.

Thanks to Brian Tinsman for unearthing this gem. Read more »

Harrison: ‘D’ Dominates Division Needs

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 10, 2014 – 11:49 am

Redskins Giants Football

(AP)

The Seattle Seahawks proved the professional football tenet once again. Defense wins championships.

According to NFL Media analyst Elliot Harrison, every team in the NFC East should prioritize the defensive side of the ball once free agency opens Tuesday, March 11, at 4 p.m.

In 2013 the New York Giants ranked eighth in the NFL in total defense, Washington was 18th, Philadelphia was 29th and Dallas was the worst in the league. Every team in the division ranked in the bottom half of the league in scoring defense.

Although he’s bullish on the long-term prospects of 2013 fourth-round pick Phillip Thomas, Harrison thinks the Redskins need to target a safety.

“Improved safety play would provide defensive coordinatorJim Haslett the confidence to take some shots as a defensive play-caller, opening up the blitz package,” Harrison wrote. Read more »

Casserly: Jeremy Maclin Top FA Receiver

The former General Manager of the Washington Redskins thinks a Philadelphia Eagle is the “most enticing” free agent wide receiver.

In an NFL.com roundtable, Charley Casserly picked Jeremy Maclin as a player he’d target if he were still working an NFL personnel department.

A Look At How Your Redskins Were Built

Posted by Chris Herting on April 16, 2013 – 2:58 pm

shanahan

Earlier in the offseason, we wrote a blog post about how last year’s team embodied Team, Effort, and Tradition and the role that head coach Mike Shanahan has played in bringing in his mix of guys.

Coach Shanahan is entering his fourth season with the team and, although it’s been a process, he has been able to revamp the roster that was in place prior to his arrival in Washington. Only nine players remain from the previous regime. In fact, 65 of the 74 players currently on the roster are ‘Shanahan’s guys’ and with the April draft approaching fast that number is only expected to increase.

The roster changes, however, should not be viewed necessarily as a rebuilding effort, yet instead viewed as part of a bigger evaluation process in an attempt to build a team consisting of humble, hardworking, character guys.

After all, health and stability is the key to pass defense, offensive success and consistency on the field. Below is a breakdown of how the roster was built, including the 21 of 22 starters that the Redskins were able to retain from the 2012 NFC East Championship roster.

UPDATE: Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 12, 2013 – 12:10 pm

draft

The Redskins made a splash yesterday re-signing six of their pending free agents and, arguably, some of the team’s key core players to help build off of last year’s NFC East Championship. The team also announced the signing of veteran free agent offensive tackle Tony Pashos (former Cleveland Brown) in addition to announcing that they had released CB DeAngelo Hall.

According to coach Mike Shanahan, yesterday’s roster moves helped the team get back under the salary cap and in position to meet the league-mandated cap requirements prior to the start of free agency today at 4pm. But despite the moves, it doesn’t appear that the team will have enough wiggle room to be a major player in free agency.

It’s possible that front office has something up their sleeves but the most likely scenario is that the team will turn their attention to the draft to help fill certain needs.

Keep in mind that a lot can happen between now and April and, yet again, consensus among the mock drafts below seems to be that the Redskins will lean toward drafting secondary.

Thought remains that this year’s draft class is secondary-laden and that there should be some intriguing prospects at number fifty-one, including some that may peak your interest as draft weekend approaches. So let’s go ahead and take a look at our updated Mock Draft Tracker and a few players that some of the experts think the Redskins should pursue.

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Chris Herting on March 11, 2013 – 5:29 pm

social_spotlight_banner

Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.

Last week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight covered WR Niles Paul and his former Nebraska Cornhusker teammates doing the Harlem Shake, NT Chris Baker’s plea for 10k Twitter followers as well as a mural from Washington D.C.’s own WR Joshua Morgan.

Admittedly so, most people probably don’t get as far as clicking the link to read these weekly social media updates. Contrarily, some of you may be reading this and say, ‘Who cares about the Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight?’ To that, we say that it’s time to start taking social media seriously.

Fact of the matter is that social media has rapidly integrated itself into our everyday lives.

For those of you who continue to read, here’s a look at K Kai Forbath and LB Ryan Kerrigan as they hit the links, QB Robert Griffin III’s return to Baylor, LB London Fletcher‘s preparation for season 16 and G Chris Chester‘s odd, and forgettable, experience at his local gym.

USA Today Names Its Free Agent Winners

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 28, 2012 – 5:03 pm

AP Image

And the Redskins are one of the teams listed.

The USA Today singles out 15 teams as either winners or losers after two weeks of free agency, and the Redskins have landed on the right side of the equation.  Most free agent power rankings are picked clean at this point, so where the Redskins sit is roughly how they’ll be judged for this free agent class.

For the second consecutive year, the Redskins have been looked to as big players in free agency, but have showed savvy restraint by avoiding the big-name, high-risk personalities.  While fans have been forced to learn the names of underrated free agents (i.e. Stephen Bowen, Joshua Morgan), the results have shown that “calculated” is the new offseason motto in Washington.

Here’s what the USA Today’s Nate Davis said about the Redskins shopping list in 2012: Read more »

Start To Free Agency Graded A Success

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 16, 2012 – 5:41 pm

In the history of the Redskins franchise, the team has been wryly crowned ‘the offseason champions’ many times for its expenditures in free agency.  We don’t need to revisit those.

But those days appear to be a thing of the past, as the Redskins–for the second-consecutive year–are earning high praise for their measured additions in free agency.

Even while preparing for an unexpectedly amended salary cap number, the Redskins have managed to add quality talent on both sides of the board, earning praise from industry gurus.

ESPN NFL expert John Clayton named the Redskins among his three winners after the first three days of free agency.  Coming at it from a fiscal responsibility angle, here’s what he had to say: Read more »

Where The Redskins Stand In Free Agency

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 16, 2012 – 12:11 pm

AP Image

What The Team Accomplished So Far:

In Day One, the team focused primarily on adding offensive weapons at the receiver position.  The Redskins locked up two quality weapons, as Kyle and Mike Shanahan continue to makeover the roster with the pieces they want.

Now the emphasis in the market seems to have shifted to the defensive side of the ball with the signing of Pro Bowl safety Brandon Meriweather.

Whether it’s playing up close to the line as a run enforcer, or playing centerfield against the pass, Meriweather classified himself as a playmaker, and his numbers support it.  He was brought in with the opportunity to rebuild his young career after a disappointing 2011 that saw him cut and used incorrectly by the Chicago Bears.

In Jim Haslett’s defense, he should be given the freedom and opportunity to make the plays that made him a top safety in the NFL in 2009 and ’10. Read more »
